The attention to service and of course, the location were both wonderful. We had some issues with tour/activities conflicts, however the concierge went to work, straightening out the issue. The room was a little on the smallish size, however it did have a small jacuzzi ourside, allowing us to view the bay below while enjoying the tub. Breakfast was good,... More

I was debating for awhile about writing this review but decided I would share what we went through because it really did effect our vacation to santorini. To begin with our room, number 41, was located at the edge of their property where you had to go down a little path and open a gate to enter our room. The... More

Not cheap but worth springing for this hotel for our honeymoon. A major upgrade from the Rocabella we had originally booked but had to leave as it was terrible. The staff was attentive, rooms were clean and stellar and the pool area was the perfect place to chill. This place is top notch and we highly recommend.

This was definitely not a cheap hotel. But the room was wonderful, and the service and helpfulness of the staff was beyond comparable. They were always available, always there when needed within mere minutes. Even order time to getting breakfast delivered was no time! And they're fruit bowl and apple juice were better than any I've had before. We will... More

Canaves is such a magical place. We did not have to lift a finger during our entire stay. The staff is exceptional and offers the best hospitality I have ever experienced. The views are gorgeous and the rooms are peaceful. We hope to go back one day soon.

There was nothing short of amazing during our stay at this hotel in Santorini. Our room was enormous with every amenity and the service was terrific. We loved our little plunge pool and relaxing lounge area outside of our room. The location was perfect. The ONLY thing that could have been nicer would be the hotel pool - it would... More

Without any doubt this is the best hotel in santorini. Excellent service, food, views and quality of the room. Nice breakfast also in front of the sea and swimingpool. You can finisih the night by going at the chilling terrace. The cocktail is a must!!!! Nothing can be better.
